Well it depends on what I’m doing with it. I’m more of a hunter than a paper puncher. I mainly use my 260 Rem with 140 grain Berger bullets. I’ve taken a 290 lb hog at 997 yards with my 260. The white target was shot just shy of 1100 yards. 12” target. If you zoom in closer you will see 4 shots that was taken just over 2300 yards.

A pre war version was my favorite until it shot out. .338 RUM these days.
I'm a bit of a model 70 collector. I really miss Grandpa's 1st year. My aunt was unfortunately disowned for giving it away....it belonged to my father, who made the mistake of leaving it at her house for a couple months.
